I love looking out my kitchen window, I always get a glimpse of something wonderful.
This last weekend, I woke up to a morning visitor perched on my fence.
There are many hawks around our house. This is not the first time they've perched on my fence. A few months ago, I actually had two hawks sitting in my mulberry tree (although I doubt they were there for the fruit.).
This little guy is a juvenile Cooper's Hawk.
From what I have read young Cooper's have yellow eyes, and as they mature, their eyes turn to a red color, and their young brown and rusty colored feathers turn to a steely blue and brown.
I took a few pictures, and then just stood there watching him watching me.
I hope he comes by again, I think he is so beautiful.
